Honda Beat se intoarce


The Beat goes on, Auto Express can reveal. Sources in Japan say that Honda will combine the best of its car and motorcycle technologies to create a front-wheel-drive, two-seater sports coupé successor to the Nineties Beat.

The original was a 3.3-metre-long drop-top, produced between 1991 and 1996, that had a 660cc engine to take advantage of Japanese tax breaks. The reborn Beat coupé will be based on the platform of the petrol-electric CR-Z two-door, but employ a smaller body with shorter overhangs, and is likely to take cues from Honda’s OSM concept car.

It is rumoured to incorporate one of the firm’s next-generation petrol engines: either the 1.3 or 1.5-litre advanced VTEC, due to appear in the company’s production cars from next year. Our spies tell us that a hybrid is not being considered for the coupé, although stop-start will feature.

The engine bosses eventually choose will be hooked up to the company’s first-ever dual-clutch transmission for cars. This set-up is borrowed and adapted from Honda’s VFR1200F motorcycle.

Targeting coupés such as the next Mazda MX-5 and recently launchedRenault
Wind, the newcomer is due in dealers in late 2013. It’s expected to cost less than £20,000, and will be sold in the US as well as Europe.

Honda nu arde uleiul, il foloseste.



Era cazul ca cineva sa incerce zdruncinarea MX-5 -ului din fotoliul de leader. Chiar daca o tot numesc "coupe", acest BEAT a devenit un roadster SUPERB. Pentru ca nu se prefigureaza a fi hybrid - chiar avand CV tip DSG - sa speram ca pe plaiurile mioritice (daca va debuta) nu va "beneficia" de o aceeasi politica de preturi precum cea a CRZ-ului. Ar fi mare pacat sa se nasca talent si sa moara speranta!



Pana la sfarsitul lui 2013 se vor schimba multe, sper ca prin acele lucruri sa fie si transmisia care sa treaca pe spate.

OT: In 2010 pe circuitul Motegi sau strans 569 de Beat-uri pentru a intra in cartea recordurilor.
